Brief Answer:
Dry mouth

Detailed Answer:
Since dry mouth and pain during urination are side effects of cetirizine , so usually don't require medicine . Chew 1-2 tablet of VITAMIN C ( limcee or sukcee ) , plenty of water and fruit juice ( without ice ) will help in both dry mouth and pain in during urination. As I mention in earlier reply these effects subside within next 2-3 days , usually don't require any medicine.
Good luck.
